Chronicle2 Blood-curse

Gul'dan offering Grommash Hellscream the felblood.

The Chalice of Rebirth[1][2] (also known as the Cup of Unity)[3] is the cup with which the orc clans of Draenor drank the blood of Mannoroth, offered to them by Gul'dan, at the Throne of Kil'jaeden in Tanaan Jungle. It was carved from the horn of an unknown creature, being curved and yellow, and had strange glyphs inscribed on it.[1]

The cup was offered to all assembled chieftains, who in turn offered it to anyone in their clans whom they wished blessed. While Blackhand was originally set to be the first drinker, Grommash Hellscream walked to Gul'dan in order to seize the moment. Grom then offered it to every single Warsong, before Blackhand could finally do it himself. The Blackrock eagerly offered it to his two sons Rend and Maim, but refused his daughter Griselda to do the same. Orgrim Doomhammer refused to drink it by pretending he wasn't worthy to share Blackhand's glory. Finally, Durotan refused to drink from the Chalice, and ordered his Frostwolves to not do it either, despite some of their protests.[4]

Warlords of Draenor[]

Warlords of Draenor This section concerns content related to Warlords of Draenor.

While the names "Cup of Unity" or "Chalice of Rebirth" were not used in Warlords of Draenor, the cup was also used on alternate Draenor by Gul'dan when he first drank Mannoroth's blood.[5] Three days later, he offered the assembled orc clans the fel blood, but they rejected it at the command of Grommash Hellscream. The Iron Horde then killed Mannoroth, captured Gul'dan and launched an invasion of Azeroth. In response, the Horde and Alliance invaded Draenor, made allies, and took the fight to the Iron Horde.

A freed Gul'dan once more offered the chalice to the orc clans after the Iron Horde's many defeats over the continent. Grommash refused but was effortlessly incapacitated by the warlock when he moved to strike Gul'dan down. Repeating his offer once more Gul'dan brought forth the cup and this time, Kilrogg Deadeye stepped forward and drank. He became the first of an army of fel orcs.

The chalice can drop from Mannoroth's boss encounter in Hellfire Citadel in the form of the Inv misc horn 03 [Empty Drinking Horn].
